people do this thing, where they represent the marginalized people they hate as not marginalized at all- they shove them into some other group without race or gender or sexuality, and for my dad it’s “liberals” and for tumblr people it’s “social justice warriors” so that if you say “wow you really hate trans women” they’re like “nuh uh i just hate ~social justice warriors~ who TALK about trans women’s struggles without being totally complimentary to ME” and like, you’re not fooling anybody dude
A girl? with a peNIS? I TOOK EIGHTH GRADE BIOLOGY AND HAVE A FRAGILE AND ARBITRARY WORLDVIEW TIME TO BE A CONDESCENDING FUCK

Wario is infecting tumblr with cisphobia one person at a time. WAWAWAWAWA
cis ppl can have horns and swirls and spikes n shit surgically implanted under their skin any time they want if theyre rich enough but a trans woman wants boobs she has to wait at least 1-2 years for doctors to be convinced that she REALLY wants them
deliciousscones asked: i'm all for using the pronouns a person prefers but, i dunno, i just think that people who insist on "special" pronouns like "leafself" or something are appropriating actual trans people who have enough trouble finding acceptance as it is.
Ignoring the fact that “actual” trans people use personalized pronouns.
On average, you have a 1 in 18,989 chance of being murdered
A trans person has a 1 in 12 chance of being murdered
The average life span of a cis person is about 75-90
The average life expectancy of a trans person is 23-30 years old
75% of people killed in anti LGBT hate crimes are poc
Think about this the next time you go crying over “cisphobia” and “reverse racism”
One major facet of cultural appropriation is taking artifacts that would be violent on the body of a person of color and making them trendy on a white body.
That’s why Forever 21 is able to sell a Black Panther crop top, and why Che Guevara t-shirts are so popular, and why Macklemore can win Grammy’s for writing songs about smelly sheets, and why white drugged out kids can walk around Coachella in tacky “native” headdresses.
When people of color cannot participate in aspects of their culture without persecution, but white people are welcome to those aspects, that’s a major undeniable example of white privilege.
[Series of texts by @fatnutritionist, which read: “People are mad at me because they ‘work so hard’ to be fit or lose weight. They have told me this explicitly. It implies that they think my rejecting the values they subscribe to can somehow take away the fitness they’ve worked for. That is totally delusional. If you’ve worked hard for fitness, no amount of fat people rejecting stigma can take that away. So this is obviously not actually about fitness, at all. It’s about the other thing they ‘worked hard’ for: social status. They DO think, and they know, that the social status they have worked hard to earn, through ‘fitness,’ can be devalued. It can be devalued if the hierarchy that rewards them is crushed. Crushed by people rejecting stigma. We can’t take away your fitness or whatever weight you’ve lost. But we can devalue those things by destroying fat stigma. So they are afraid of us, and for good reason. If fat people aren’t stigmatized, then there is no more thin privilege. Remember always, fat people: People are afraid of you because you have an awesome power - to destroy the hierarchy. If they were not afraid of losing their place in the hierarchy, they would not come after you so viciously.” All tweets were accompanied by the hashtag, #notyourgoodfatty]
